Don’t take everything so serious

Sometimes I feel like I live on a different planet, or one step removed from everyone. There are so many things going on that are obvious and the majority of people can’t see. So much that I don’t understand. It sometimes makes me wonder whether or not there is something wrong with me. 

How can people justify physical violence being used because they don’t like a joke a professional comedian made? How is hitting someone ever okay? Nothing justifies using violence against words ever. Honestly, behavior like that is disgusting.

People need to stop taking everything so serious again. Take a joke people. Laugh at yourself, trust me, life is so much easier once you stop getting offended by everything and looking at everything as a personal attack. 

I’m blonde, I never felt personally attacked by anyone making a joke about blondes, I grew up listening to those. 

I’m a woman, never felt offended by people joking about women.

Why would I be? Neither my hair color nor my gender defines me. 

I am who I am what matters is the way I behave, the way I think, the things I do. Yes, being a blonde woman plays a part in all of that, but it is not who I am. 

Life is difficult enough without creating even more issues than are already there. Laughing at yourself and some of the hardships you’re facing makes it a little easier. It’s not easy to laugh at yourself, I used to have a lot of trouble doing that but guess what? Life has gotten a lot more fun since I stopped taking myself too serious. 

Take a joke, laugh and never think it is okay to use your fists against words. Words only have as much power as you give them. You have the power and the choice whether or not you are going to let others have power over you simply for using words.
